‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ (TV Series 2000–2024) To Officially End With Season 12 On HBO

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ (TV Series 2000–2024) To Officially End With Season 12 On HBO

Larry David, creator and star of every season, says he’s ending the show, but this time it looks like it’s for real.

“As soon as the curb is over, I now have the opportunity to finally shed this ‘Larry David’ persona and become the person God intended me to be – a thoughtful, kind, caring, considered human being until I got back on track.” The portrayal of this malicious character, David said. “And so ‘Larry David,’ I take leave of you. Your misogyny will not be forgotten and those of you who wish to contact me can contact me at Doctors Without Borders.”

Season 12 will premiere on February 4 and the 10-part series finale will air on April 7. The show has been a prolific run, starting in 1999 as a one-hour special Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm (where David and his then-wife Cheryl had children).

The first season premiered in October 2000. The first eight seasons were fairly regular, occurring every year or every other year. But there was a huge gap of over six years between seasons eight and nine and a gap of three years between seasons nine and 10, so it’s not out of the question that David might change his mind at some point and return to scriptless comedy. Come.

In March, creator Jon Heyman caused a stir on social media by saying that season 12 would be its last season.

Executive producer Jeff Schaeffer, David’s longtime partner on the show, later debunked the story, saying “reports of our demise have been greatly exaggerated.”

“We literally just finished shooting last week. So, yes, we’re done,” he said, adding that the crew, including David, ends every season with the hope of seeing whether the series can continue. .

Unfortunately, it seems this time, Heyman was right.

Casey Bloys, president and CEO of HBO and Max Content, previously said the network leaves this decision up to David and said more seasons are an “open invitation.”

David at the Curb in L.A. (and for one fantasy season, New York) is shown. It stars Jeff Garlin as his manager and best friend; Suzie Essman as Jeff’s abusive wife (who can forget that carwash line in Season 3); Cheryl Hines as his ex-wife; J.B. Smoove appeared in season 6 as his roommate, who never left his black family (which also includes Vivoka A. Fox) after Hurricane Katrina; Richard Lewis as his oldest friend; Ted Danson as himself, who once dated David’s ex-wife Cheryl; Vince Vaughn, who played Freddy Funkhouser, the half-brother of Marty Funkhouser, played by the late, great Bob Einstein; and Tracey Ullman, who played Irma Kostroski, city councilwoman (and for a moment, his beautiful rebel girlfriend) in season 11.

The show has been hugely acknowledged as well, amassing 51 Emmy nominations and two wins for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for Robert B. Weide, and Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series for Steven Rasch. It has received 10 nominations for outstanding comedy series but never won (c’mon Academy). It has also five Golden Globe nominations and one win as well as multiple nominations and wins across other awards including SAG, DGA and WGA.

Then, there are the guest stars. It has featured memorable turns from Mel Brooks, Martin Scorsese, Ben Stiller, Christian Slater, Rosie O’Donnell (remember that fight scene?), Michael J. Fox, Ricky Gervais, Lin-Manuel Miranda, F. Murray Abraham and David Schwimmer .

There was also a Seinfeld reunion season, which saw Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards work on a reboot of the classic NBC comedy that David co-created in order for Larry to win back his ex-wife.

David exec produces alongside Garlin and Schaffer, with Laura Streicher and Jennifer Corey as co-executive producers.

Bloys added, “It’s hard to say goodbye to such a ground-breaking, brilliantly funny and iconic series like Curb Your Enthusiasm, which has left its mark across television and the comedy genre. Working beside Larry David and Jeff Schaffer as well as all of the comedic masterminds that comprise our producers, cast and crew has been a joy that I will always treasure.”
